Message from the Chairman
The EBME (Electronic and biomedical engineering) conference and exhibition started in 2009.
Did you Know?
The EBME (Electronic and Biomedical Engineering) conference and exhibition started in 2009 as a way of improving healthcare through the sharing and application of knowledge from experienced professionals involved in the management of healthcare technology.
The goal is still to help healthcare professionals learn about the latest developments and take that new knowledge back to their respective organisations. Understanding and implementing new healthcare technology allows healthcare providers to deliver better patient outcomes, at lower costs. I am honoured to have chaired the EBME Expo on the 30th June and 1st July 2021. This was the first large indoor event to be held since the pandemic started in 2020. The EBME Expo was a great success, with both the exhibitors and delegates agreeing that it was the best ever show. I must thank the EBME Expo team for doing a wonderful job. I also want to thank the staff at the Marshall Arena for ensuring we were all fed, there were plenty of refreshments, and the arena was kept clean.
I now look forward to seeing you all on the 28th and 29th June 2022 in the Coventry Building Society Arena. We have moved to this larger venue due to the growing popularity of the EBME Expo, to ensure that both delegates and exhibitors alike will have a rewarding experience. The EBME Expo 2022 will feature two conferences with well-known, distinguished speakers in the ‘EBME’ and ‘Operating Theatre’ conference halls. There will be a range of both larger and smaller exhibition spaces, with more than a hundred internationally respected companies showcasing their latest products and services. The variety of stand sizes will enable all types of companies to exhibit.
It’s always a pleasure to meet the delegates and exhibitors every year. Our 12th conference will focus on innovations in medical equipment technology on day one, and medical equipment management, procurement and training on day two. The programme will feature fourteen speaker sessions each day in two separate conference areas. The EBME conference area will focus on wider organisational topics – discussing how technology can deliver improved patient outcomes at lower costs. The second conference area will focus on Operating Theatres, and how technology can impact on improving efficiency and surgical outcomes.
In addition, there will be six workshops in the break out areas, where many of our exhibitors will be providing technical demonstrations. The two-day programme will allow delegates to find out about the latest healthcare technology, across a range of professional areas. It also offers numerous opportunities for informal networking with both exhibitors and colleagues’.
As the EBME conference and exhibition chairman for the last 12 years, I know that the success of the EBME Expo 2022 event depends upon the attending delegates, exhibitors, and speakers. Recognition should go to the organising committee, and deputy chair, who work extremely hard to ensure a successful event is delivered. In particular, I would like to thank the EBME website team, our event partner, BtoB Events Ltd, and the exhibitors (who ultimately pay for this event). I look forward to welcoming you all at the EBME Expo in 2022.
Dr John Sandham
